This little book explores the impact of witches: in movies, television, and books, in fashion, and in popular culture. It examines the symbolic significance of objects and practices associated with witches, from riding broomsticks to reading tarot cards and tea leaves. However, moving beyond both scary and silly depictions of witches, the authors explain that their particular brand of “witchcraft” is about dismantling “the cultural conditioning that trains women to be weak and small,” and most importantly, about finding one’s ”personal purpose, truth and intention.” They are interested in rituals, incantations and affirmations that defeat negativity, empower, awaken self-confidence, and support self-actualization and positive change. Readers will enjoy this very seasonal brew of legend, lore, and magic with a generous dash of feminist attitude.
